June Yarn Giveaway: Its up to you.

A big thank you to everyone who has taken part in the last 2 giveaways. Last month was hard, due to my internet and Stellas GAS LEAK. We are back on track and whilst the weather is fine and we can wash fibre we thought we would crack on.

Ok, so this month we thought we would do a single colour....Its up to me and Stella to come up with something beautiful from the suggestions you give us.

Both of us will pick a colour from the hat, so it may be the same colour it may be different.

Now Me and Stella have very different taste, so I am sure that you will pick our fav colours but it is if we pick it out the HAT!!!! LOL SO we may be working with something that we wouldn't normally use.

Please also tell us in your comments if you want plain wool a mix, maybe a bit of llama, silk or mohair.

We are really hoping to get some pics up at the weekend of our fleece washing and details of our COLOUR.

AS before each comment will gain an enter, the more comments you make the more entries.

Ok JUNE GIVEAWAY GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LazyTcrochet said...

I would love an earthy green wool/mohair. Fun giveaway!

Madam Salami said...

I don't know I don't know!!! ooh erm OK, deep deep purple, lace weight this time with mohair and something funky woven in, er like little silver flecks.
Would that be possible??

I may change mind though! x x

Zoe said...

Brillant so far....

Sharnemainia knits said...

hot pinks with mohair and some sliver silk or am i going over board???

amylane said...

I would love a beautiful jade green with some silk. Although I think all the suggestions so far sound wonderful too. So exciting to see what you produce...

greenfrog said...

Ohh a lovely burnt orange mohair. This is very exciting - Can't wait !

Apryl said...

I have no idea what to suggest my tastes these days tend to be towards blacks and greys ( I blame my inner gothlet) with hints of deep red or bright aqua/teal to contrast the dark.

Shadow/Felt Fusion said...

Oooh, tricky as I love so many colours. Hot pink, teal, purple....

As for the fibre, something feltable but fun so a little of something else would be fab!

veggiecath said...

Something with lots of shades of blue would be perfect :) And wool ^^

Joy said...

I love red. Subtle soft red, rather than `in your face` pillar box red. Something that would make nice animal clothes if you get my drift.

Lyndsey-Jane said...

My colour of the moment is ORANGE, nice and bright and summerlike. SOme silk would then shine like the sun

Hannah said...

purple or red or purple and red :)

ikkinlala said...

Right now... rich, earthy brown (chocolate or a bit more reddish than that). Wool or mostly wool, although a bit of something else might be fun.

Madam Salami said...

Purple purple purple purple - with little silvery bits!

Kristen said...

I love moss green or an indigo violet....some silk or llama would be cool!

Diane said...

Electric blue has my vote!

my7kids said...

I envision rich chocolate browns with touches of beige-greys and bits of black - any type of wool blend.

stacy said...

I'd love to see something in a shocking yellow, maybe a bit of silkspun in.

SelkiSkin said...

I would love a softly variegated purple that went from deep deep purple up to lavender. Maybe with some silk in to give it a nice sheen?

Alexandria said...

Joy said...

tollykit said...

I'm looking for a sky blue with llama. Nice lace weight.

A deep red using a mix to lend excitement and texture to an intense experience ... lol

Alexandria said...

Teal or red, semi solid.
